    Hi.

    Every time my form loads it loads the Spanish side first. How can I have it load the English side first?

    In fact, is it possible to have the form load in English when our customer is on the English side of the website and load in Spanish when our customer is on the Spanish side of the website?

    I have a feeling that I will need to create a separate form for each language.

    Please advise.

    Thanks!

    How can I have it load the English side first? — Your form loads in English by default when I checked it. It looks like you were able to change the default language to English.

    In fact, is it possible to have the form load in English when our customer is on the English side of the website and load in Spanish when our customer is on the Spanish side of the website? — No need to create another form, you can force the form to load in English or Spanish via url. You can share the following links to your customers.

    Perfect. Where did you find the entire codes for English & Spanish? I was trying to look for it.

    Hi @MarinLatinFoods

    I found a list here:

    Thanks Flavio for that direction.

    However, I'm taking about the specific address you sent me:

    English

    https://www.jotform.com/form/201535106259046?language=en

    Spanish 

    https://www.jotform.com/form/201535106259046?language=es-419

    or did you look at: https://sites.google.com/site/tomihasa/google-language-codes
    to add the codes "en" and "es-419" after first adding ...."/language="
    to the main address: https://www.jotform.com/form/201535106259046 (?)

    I hope you understand my question.

    What I want to know, is there somewhere on my account that I can see the entire address?

    Hi Paul

    My colleague had just added the language parameters at the end of the form URL. It is not a specific feature of JotForm. It was a bruteforce approach to make your form load the correct language.

    That's exactly what I thought.

    Thanks for the help!
